Is It October Already?

It is still so hot! I'm ready for the cooler temperatures that are supposed to arrive toward the end of the week. In the 90's again today, though.

I finished putting the binding on Crane the other day. He has a little bead for an eye, but it doesn't show up too well on the black & white dot fabric. All said and all done (as the auctioneer says) on this project.
Laddie's Birthday on Friday.
Erin and the grandkids are coming this afternoon. I spent most of yesterday cleaning up after having let things go for the past week due to all of the activities-- some serious like the trip to El Dorado to see Aunt Mary, some annoying and frustrating, and some pleasant like Laddie's birthday on Friday and a Sunday spent down at Raft Bayou. Because rain was predicted (but didn't materialize--bah!), I also mowed and edged the yard in 93 degree heat and high humidity. Things are now fairly clean and organized, and a trip to the grocery store is on the agenda.

I love the shape of these bags (Sube Sacs), and Kris La Flame has a great tutorial with pictures and easy to follow instructions.


  1. Great Job! I love the Crane on the background fabric.

    Sending my Birthday wishes to Laddie.

  2. I just LOVE that happy crane !
    Laddie looks like a 'pip" and I am so glad he was able to enjoy that special M&M Cake.

  3. Jen, that's a fun quilt! And the party looks fun too. You look happy!

  4. love the crane, and i love those dots, i am really into dots lately. kristin's bags are cool too, i think i'll try one.

  5. Looks like a wonderful birthday party!

  6. I didn't say, but I love your crane!

  7. Debbi - Thanks! for the nice comment and for the Birthday Wishes!

    Marie - Laddie does love cookie cake. His eyes lit up when he saw that box.

    Connie - When Laddie is happy, we are all happy. He tires easily, and too much activity makes him nervous, but we cut things short when we see the need.

    jude - I'm thinking that I'll try one of kristin's bags, too.

    Sue - It was a good party. We even ended up back in his room dancin' a little to Glen Miller!

  8. I love Crane. It is awesome!

  9. Thanks, Deb! He hung around a long time before I finally decided to finish him.


Good to hear from you!
